“Penny” Bottle Opener

If you need a new bottle opener or want a new project for the weekend, this Penny Bottle Opener is what you’re looking for. It takes a standard penny, two pieces of wood and creates something you can use for life. It’s always nice to add a little bit of personality into your normal routines.

Rotating Drawer Box

Yet another breathtaking design done by Steve Good, a rotating drawer makes the perfect place to store valuables like jewelry. This project is a little more than some other’s, but hard work always pays off when it comes to scroll sawing. The humming bird on the top is what stands out the most, giving a great contrast between light and dark wood. Give this project a try if you feel up to a challenge today.
